Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
According to an article published a few hours ago on the WSJ, Obama has authorized air strikes against any would be attackers on a newly revealed US trained militant force. (recruits sourced from Syria [supposedly]).

The article was quick to mention however, that it was not too long ago that the pentagon admitted that it had only managed to find 60 “moderate” jihadists to train. (It’s as if telling Americans that they’re lying, makes the bullshit more pretty. I can never understand why they keep doing that)
Here’s an article from Sputnik detailing the Pentagon’s failure to find “moderate” jihadists, just in case you wanted to know more about the story. It’s important to note that a big chunk of the fighters belonging to ISIS, to Al-Q, to FSA, and to Nusra are Wahhabists. Wahabbi Islam is a branch of Sunni Islam that is being spread like peanut butter on toast by Saudi Arabia. It’s my understanding that this is some sort of religious conquest, heavily infused with oil money.

There was one section in the WSJ article that I thought was interesting:
The new rules, which the Pentagon recommended and which Mr. Obama approved, will apply only to forces trained and equipped by the Pentagon. Those forces are currently only in northern Syria, and officials made clear the new rules won’t apply to forces backed by the U.S. in southern Syria….
Last year, the Nusra Front attacked rebel groups linked to a separate train-and-equip program run by the Central Intelligence Agency. The assault pushed the CIA-backed rebels out of northern Syria.
In response, the spy agency has shifted its support to rebel units in the south. In contrast to the Pentagon program, the CIA program has been focused on fighting the Assad regime.
In the north, Pentagon Jihadists. (Conveniently close to Turkey’s supply line to ISIS).
And in the south, CIA backed FSA jihadists. Creating a corridor for ISIS to move freely from the East and into Western-central Syria.
Here’s what I’m talking about:
How much do you want to bet that ISIS’ next big push will be strictly on refugee camps and civilian centers, as an attempt to distance themselves media-wise from their foreign financiers (and to keep Europe from panicking). The MSM will surely be there beforehand to “document” it.
